What issues might arise after young people make critical decisions? Almost everyone makes decisions every single day of their lives.Some of them are good, some bad. Sometimes teenagers make critical decisions, and consequences can be bad if those decisions are bad. In Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, both Romeo and Juliet make some critical decisions.
In today’s society many people believe that true romance is dead, but it really isn’t. It’s just not the same as it used to be. Everything is toned down in a way, so they aren’t seen as these huge declarations of love that could get someone killed like they might have been when Cyrano de Bergerac was written. Even though romance isn’t seem in the same way, it’s still alive and kicking. In the play Cyrano, the main character, is constantly going around and making huge gestures, some of them aren’t even for the person he loves, but he does it to help other people find the kind of love he wants.
Paris says, “That she doth give her sorrow so much sway, and in his wisdom hastes our marriage, to stop the inundation of her tears.” (708) when he is talking to Friar Laurence about him and Juliet getting married. In others words, Paris and Capulet think that Juliet is lamenting over Tybalt’s death and Paris wants to get married quickly in order to make Juliet happy again. This shows that neither Paris nor Capulet knows how Juliet actually feels and what is really going on. Capulet most likely has an ulterior motive in the sense that now that Tybalt is dead he wants to have another relation to Prince Escalus, which in this case would be through Paris. It is because of fate that Capulet decides to have the marriage so soon.
If these families didn't have this feud then maybe Romeo and Juliet could still be together. Perhaps if the families wasn't feuding then Tybalt wouldn't of fought Romeo which lead to Romeo killing Tybalt. Which then lead to the banishing Romeo. " And for that immediately we do exile him" the prince says. If it were not for the feud then Romeo and Juliet wouldn't have to hide and be secret about there love .
In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, both protagonist act impetuous, which alters their lives. They act without thinking and forget that there are consequences to their actions. Both Romeo and Juliet hide the fact that they were in love and married from their families. If Romeo and Juliet really love each other they would take their time to get to know each other. They also would talk things through, but they both have their flaws.
Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
Consequences Of Hasty Decisions in Romeo and Juliet Having to make decisions in a short amount of time can lead to choices irrational choices with life-changing consequences. Because people think of a solution too quickly, a hasty decision may not consider all the possibilities, and have obvious faults.

They wouldn’t have had to lie if the parents would have just been more involved with what the kids were doing. The Friar and Nurse who weren't even family knew more about them than the parents. Based on hard evidence it is clear that Shakespeare chose the theme of Family for his story. Whether family is the theme or not one thing is for sure, in a literary world where romance falls untimely between two young lovers, with a feud between their families, the outcome is never a happy
One of the main themes that I caught during this week of studies was that language does create reality. Language also creates gender, which poses a problem for some people. Language also does seclude people as well, for example, when someone says “Ladies and Gentleman” before an act, they are secluding people who do not prefer to label themselves as a lady or gentleman. Language is a very powerful tool if it is used correctly, and from what I have gained from this week is that we still have some obstacles to tackle before language is fully inclusive for everyone. From this week there was a major thing that I did not agree with, and it was how the class was labeling people as “cisgender” from just looking at a picture.
Romeo and juliet do not have fully developed brains. They are still teenagers, They don't have a full understanding of what love is and how it works. Romeo and juliet were under the stress of their family's. Romeo wanted to get married as soon as possible thinking that their families vendettas would end, juliet agreed and they decided to get married, As with most suicides, there is more to the story than just the ending. It’s never just that they wanted to end their life.
